Description

Companion of Pauline Montgomery is shown photographing a tombstone for Olive Ruth Adams, born 1912, died 1922. Lambs symbolize an infant or child's tombstone. Tree trunks symbolized rustic and rural values, the biblical Tree of Life, and certain fraternal organizations-such as the Woodmen of the World. This tombstone has a more traditional pillar base with a smaller, carved tree trunk and lamb on its top.
